Adjusting to Earth’s gravity affects every astronaut differently, for David Saint-Jacques getting his equilibrium back to normal has been one of the issues.

That was one of the comments Saint-Jacques made during his first news conference after landing late last Monday night.

While he was clearly feeling the negative effects of transitioning from the microgravity of being on the International Space Station when he first returned to Earth, he looked much better today.

During the news conference he was accompanied by the Canadian Space Agency’s Natalie Hirsch, exercise and nutrition specialist, and Raffi Kuyumjian, the flight surgeon.
